El Paso’s Republican mayor Dee Margo says that President Trump’s claim that his city’s law and order was turned around by building a fence is “not factually correct”. In his State of the Union speech last week, Donald Trump said El Paso used to have extremely high rates of violent crime until a border fence was constructed in 2008.
